The USA American firm of General Electric has a rich tradition and for decades, it has been one of the world's largest builders of railroad vehicles. In 2005, GE introduced a new locomotive type designed to fulfill stricter emissions standards. This class, called the EVOLUTION series, is focused in its looks on the six-axle DASH locomotives, which have been built for decades. However, GE developed a completely new, 12-cylinder diesel motor with an output of 4,400 horsepower for the drive. The most successful variation of the EVOLUTION series is the ES44AC, in which 44 stands for the output and AC (Alternating Current) describes its equipment consisting of alternating current traction motors.
Over the course of time, GE has sold over 2,500 locomotives of this version, 1,168 of them alone to the Union Pacific Railroad, which uses these reliable workhorses on their entire network. This means the ES44AC has been built in the largest numbers in the USA.
